Could you specify what your question exactly is please? Do you want to replace your screen? Or solve the overheating? We can't help you if you don't tell us what your question is exactly is? Also describe the events leading up to the cracked screen and the overheating.


What happened was I went to turn off my device and the device was in the process of shutting down but instead of turning off it stalled in the process and started heating up. I was afraid of the tablet exploding so I opened the tablet manually like in the process of a tear down and disconnected the battery power from the device and let the device cool down. After the tablet/ device cooled down I reconnected the battery power to the device and proceeded to put the device back together. When I finished reassembling the tablet the screen somehow cracked. I hope that made sense I apologise for any confusion.


So what exactly is the question? do you want help with the battery, screen, software?


For right now the screen


As you have specified that the screen has been cracked, you'll have to replace the screen if you want.

Hi @griff777 ,

What screen has the crack in it, the digitizer (touchscreen) or the LCD screen?

Here’s a link to a video that shows how to replace the digitizer in a Nextbook Ares 8A tablet. You could use it to replace the LCD screen as well if that was the problem.

Just search online for Nextbook Ares 8A touchscreen (or LCD screen if applicable) to find suppliers of the part.
